It was a lot funnier when I was 19 years old.
First saw this in a humanities course in college. W.C. Fields was a bit of a counterculture cult hero back then.
The gag where ice cubes come out of the pump isn't too bad, but the film is slow paced, with the regular "And it ain't a fit night out for man nor beast!" to keep you watching.
If you like Fields, watch it.
